Chicken and Sun Dried Tomatoes

I have to admit I am a total foodie. There is just something so satisfying about making a meal that everybody loves. We have old fashioned dinners at my house where everyone sits at the table and eats, almost every night of the week. There is something to be said for us all gathering around the table and sharing our  days events  and renewing our sense of family  I tried this recipe over the weekend and it was a huge hit!!! I served it with steamed broccoli with garlic butter.  We will definitely add this to our repertoire of regulars.

Chicken and sun dried tomatoes
3 T. olive oil
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 can 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup thinly sliced sun dried tomatoes
1 T. red wine vinegar
2 T. chopped fresh basil leaves
4 cups hot cooked extra wide noodles
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese(optional)

1. Heat 2 T. oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook 10 minutes or until well browned on both sides. Remove chicken from skillet.
2. Heat remaining oil in skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and cook and stir 2 minute. Stir soup, water, tomatoes, vinegar and basil in skillet.
3. Return chicken to skillet and heat to boil. Reduce heat to low. Cook 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. serve chicken and sauce over noodles. Sprinkle with cheese and thinly sliced basil, if desired.
